About Ms Figueroa
Dear Parents and Students,
I am so excited to begin my second year at Kyrene Middle School. I am a Tempe native having graduated from Xavier College Preparatory. I went to Regis University in Denver where I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. I began my teaching career in Denver and then moved back home. Since then, I have taught 1-8th grades in Mesa, Cave Creek and central Phoenix. I received my master’s degree in Bilingual/Multi-Cultural Education from NAU in 2004 where I also served as an adjunct professor. I am currently in the midst of completing my second master's degree in Educational Administration. Graduation is set for June 2019.
I have four wonderful adult children (two of whom are married) and three pups named Tucker, Gracie and Majerle. I enjoy traveling, finding new places to dine, going to ASU, Diamondback and Cardinal games and spending time with my family and friends.
I'm looking forward to working with students, teachers and parents in my new role as KMS' Academic and Behavior Specialist.Sincerely,Ms Figueroa
